Prepare for the Harvest Part I, by Rick Joyner and Bob Weiner

This is the first part of a series devoted to help the church prepare for the multitudes of new believers soon to be gathered.   

Bible Studies for a Firm Foundation, by Bob & Rose Weiner

The atonement: God’s provision for man’s sin 

Contributors to the Journal over the years have included Francis Frangipane, Dudley Hall, Reuven Doron, Aaron Katz, Paul Cain, Dennis Peacocke, Bob Mumford, Art Katz, Derek Prince, Wellington Boone, James Ryle and others.

Speaker at the ecumenical Celebrate Jesus 2000 11 held in St. Louis, Missouri, June 22-25, 2000. Other ecumenical speakers included: Rev. Jack Hayford, Babsie Bleasdell, Rev. Steve Hill, Rev. Pat Robertson , Fr. Tom Forrest, Fr. Bob DeGrandis, Rev. Ted Haggard, Fr. Michael Scanlan, Rev. John Kilpatrick, Cindy Jacobs, Francis MacNutt, Rev. John & Carol Arnott, Rev. Vinson Synan and many more.              

Jay Rogers is current editor/writer of The Forerunner 12. Robert Weiner is known as "... the Father of Maranatha Christian Churches and Campus Ministries.  13 Although they decentralized in 1989, from those roots and his vision, God has raised up many faithful world changing Churches and ministries and sent hundreds of laborers into the harvest....Bob's Ministry is marked by the release of Apostolic Faith, Signs and wonders.  His vision is to win One Billion souls before Jesus returns!"

Although Maranatha reportedly disbanded, many of its churches and groups did not. "According to an article in the March issue of Charisma and Christian Life magazine, Maranatha leaders decided at a July 1989 board meeting that too much of a “spirit of control” had entered the ministry. The article also noted that four Maranatha elders suggested Weiner take a sabbatical during which time he would evaluate his “personal character.”

During the sabbatical, Weiner concluded that, “I have been struggling with anger, unkindness, contentiousness and a tendency to control,” the article quoted him as saying. 

In 1984, however, Weiner steadfastly denied that the ministry engaged in abuses of authority. According to the August 10, 1984 Christianity Today, Weiner was responding to the just-released conclusions of an ad hoc committee of cult watchers that charged Maranatha Christian Ministries with having “an authoritarian orientation with potential negative consequences for members.” Weiner accused the committee of having an anticharismatic bias.

The Christianity Today article, and another article a year later in the Wall Street Journal, publicized allegations that Maranatha members were not allowed to date and were required to submit their lives to shepherds who made decisions for them. Marriages of staff members were subject to Maranatha’s entire board of elders. 14 

Information obtained from an individual, who was removed from Maranatha in March 2000, stated, "Apostle" Don Pfotenhauer is  the "apostle and spiritual covering" of Maranatha Christian Church, the campus church on the University of Minnesota whose pastor is Bruce Harpel. He started Maranatha at the U of M in 1982. He refused to repent when the whole Maranatha church structure was investigated between 1982-1984 and supposedly "disbanded" back in 1989.  Pfotenhauer's first church was called Way of the Cross." "In 1980, Don was released from full-time pastoral duties to devote himself to the growing number of churches and pastors that were seeking out his counsel.  That developed into the United Network of Christian Churches and Ministries to which he currently provides apostolic oversight, including churches in Eastern Europe." 15 

While it has been suggested that the shepherding movement ceased when Marantha "disbanded" current facts reveal otherwise. 

Don Pfotenhauer became a member of the Fort Lauderdale Five's secretive General Council in 1977. Qualifications were, " There are two qualifications for entering into the Council: either being a head elder of a community or having an "apostolic ministry" (in the broad sense of "apostolic")..." 16 

The  ecumenical "Five" were none other than the ecumenical shepherding/ discipling instigators Bob Mumford, Derek Prince, Don Basham, Ern Baxter, and Charles Simpson mentioned in the article Shepherds in Disguise. Other ecumenical members of their General Council who were selected included Dick Key, Tom Monroe, Ray Ostendorf, Steve Clark, Ralph Martin, John Poole, Larry Christenson, Kevin Ranaghan, Jim Cavnar, Dick Coleman, Paul DeCelles, Bruce Yocum, Cardinal Suenens and others. It should be noted that the shepherding movement was connected to the Catholic Church from the beginning. 

Ralph Martin, a member of the Ft. Lauderdale General Council since 1974 or prior,  is president of Renewal Ministries 17, a Catholic charismatic mission organization dedicated to evangelization and renewal. It was founded in 1980 by Ralph Martin, considered by many to be the most effective Catholic evangelist since Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. During the mid-1960s, Ralph served as a national leader of Cursillo, a Catholic renewal movement, and helped it grow to national prominence. In the 1970s, he emerged as one of the main leaders of worldwide Catholic renewal. He worked closely with Cardinal Leon Joseph Suenens, of Belgium, to establish an international office for renewal in the Church. He is presently a leader of The Word of God, an ecumenical Christian community in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

From the 'General Council's Minutes", we see that Steve Clark and Ralph Winter were responsible for being liaisons from the General Council to their community coordinators for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Service Committee. Lutheran Charismatic Renewal Service Committee, which Morris Vaagenes headed in 1977, had Larry Christenson on the Coordinating Committee. Don Pfotenhauer and Rod Lensch were supposed to form leadership and authority which would lead to prophetic leadership for LCRS. [See: General Council Minutes as forwarded]

Don Pfotenhauer was speaker at an ecumenical event called Wisdom 2001 18, April 26-29. The Conference ad reads, " Since about 1960, God has poured out His Spirit in a powerful and creative expression we call the Charismatic Movement.  God used many men and women to give birth to this move of His Spirit.  After 30 years, WISDOM 2001 gathered many of them together to draw forth from their experience the principal gems of wisdom they have learned to live by.  It is my conviction that this wisdom is so valuable that it needed to be collected in some form so that it can be passed on to 21st Century Christians....* 

Some of those invited but unable to attend included Ralph Martin, Dorothy & Kevin Ranaghan, Rev. Tommy Tyson, Rev. Kenneth Hagin, Rev. Kenneth Copeland, Nicky Cruz, Rev. Howard Ervin, Rev. Vinson Synan, Rev. Harald Bredeson, Sr. Nancy Kellar, Sr. Linda Koontz, Rev. Jack Hayford, Fr. Tom Forrest, Rev. Terry Fullam, Rev. Chuck Smith, Rev. Bob Mumford, Rev. Derek Prince, Rev.

Weiner is Executive Board member of International Charismatic Bible Ministries (ICBM) 19. See: Eject2 and From Shepherds in Disguise :

  "In 1986, the ever ecumenical Oral Roberts formed the International Charismatic Bible Ministries (ICBM) 13 ICBM advertises it's 1999's Conference audio and videotape which shows speakers/video workshops to have included “Bill Basansky & Rodney Howard-Browne” teaching, “Church Growth/Home Cell Ministries” and Oral Roberts & Benny Hinn working together. Their new conference is slated for June20-22, 2000. Their slogan has been “Love and Unity through Signs and Wonders.” 14 

 The ICBM conducts “leadership conferences,”15 and is a “coalition of charismatic leaders,” many of whom are dominionists.16 While noting that the names change occasionally Al Dager cites an Ad for Charismatic Bible Ministries, in Charisma, May 1987 showing that the original officers and trustees were: Oral Roberts* -Chairman; Ken Copeland* -Secretary; Jack Hayford* - Vice Chairman; Billy Joe Dougherty* - Treasurer; Paul Yonggi Cho—International Honorary Chairman; Executive Committee Members: Charles Green, Marilyn Hickey, Karl Strader [Bolding added]17  "

Sara Diamond wrote, " ...Maranatha members describe themselves as "God's Green Berets." They are the most aggressively evangelistic and politically rightwing of any campus crusader. Members are not permitted to date and must ask the shepherd's permission to marry... Maranatha Campus Ministries embody a post-millennium theology about the Kingdom of God on earth. Its first goal is "to change the face of the world" by proclaiming Christian principles everywhere, and overthrowing humanism, atheism, and communism... They think that in a Christian world, the Kingdom of God will be compatible with capitalism and the conservative ideology...In the booklet "Christian Dominion," Weiner says God chose English- speaking Teutonic people to come to America and "administer government among savages and senile people." They organized pro-contra demonstrations on 70 campuses before a crucial vote. They claim to have taken over the student government at the University of Hawaii... They began to work in Costa Rica in July l988. David Fazio, Forerunner campus correspondent in Chapel Hill in l986 and Natl Chair of Students for America, led a group of students to "safe houses" in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, to meet with contras and Commander Indalecio Rodriguez...Defectors say that the group often uses mind control techniques to guide personal lives. The group has been removed from several colleges by college authorities...Weiner is on the Board of Governors of the Council for National Policy and the steering committees of the Coalition on Revival and the North American Congress on the Holy Spirit....Ten percent of The Leadership Institute's people are Maranatha. The Leadership Institute is headed by [CNP's] Morton Blackwell, a former Reagan liaison to religious groups. It also has many senators and representatives on the advisory board, and it is designed to train rightist political activists... Students for America [founded by Ralph Reed] is made up of one quarter Maranatha members...Weiner serves on many rightwing committees in the United States including the American Coalition for Traditional Values [Tim LaHaye  ], Council for National Policy (Board of Governors), International Policy Forum, and the National Federation for Decency... Maranatha Campus Ministries is a member of the National Association of Evangelicals..." 20   Footnotes 4-20

In 1971 Joe Coors along with Jack Wilson and Paul Weyrich founded Analysis and Research Inc., to establish a political research entity. Joe Coors donated the first-year Heritage budget of $250,000 for 1973 from the coffers of the Coors Corporation and for the next two years gave $200,000. He then pledged $15,000 per month. Coors and Weyrich set up the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress to carry out political activities and the Heritage Foundation as a tax exempt educational research entity. The Coors company provided Heritage Foundation with $20,000 per month during the foundation's first year. Weyrich was Heritage president until February 28, 1974. Weyrich had ties to Josef Strauss of Bavaria Germany who was active in a political party that coalesced with repentant Nazi's after World War II.

Strauss came to the United States in the early 1970's.  Weyrich and Strauss' aide by the name of Armin K. Haas planned Strauss' schedule. Joe Coors helped Haas make political contacts in Congress. 33  

"Paul Weyrich united with the Coors family which funded the start-up of the Heritage Foundation in the early 1970s. In 1974, with money from the Coors family, Weyrich also started the Committee for the Survival of a Free Congress, which later became the Free Congress Foundation. Since the beginning, the Heritage Foundation and the Free Congress Foundation have been led and/or received oversight by Weyrich, and their boards of directors are interlinked.

The Free Congress Foundation, The Heritage Foundation and the Conservative Caucus actively supported the Contras.  In 1985, Heritage Foundation, "donated" $100,000 to the Institute for North-South Issues, a conduit to the Contras, connected to Oliver North. The $100,000 came from Roy Godson, a consultant with the National Security Council, and director of the National Strategy Information Center. (B-220)"  34 

CNP's  Robert H. Krieble joined the board of Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation, where he launched his own conservative think tank, the Krieble Institute (1989), an educational project of Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation. Krieble also was former vice chairman of The Heritage Foundation Board of Trustees (since 1978) and 1996 and Chairman of the Finance Committee, contribution about $100,000 per year for almost a decade; ... former member of the Hoover Institution. 35  Board of Overseers from 1982 to 1995.

Weyrich's Free Congress claims to have trained over 7,000 grassroots activists and organizations in the United States since October 1995. It conducts its training sessions on a monthly basis through the Krieble Institute. The Institute initiated the grassroots political training program in 1995 to take advantage of the "conservative revolution" at home. Teaming up with the Congress' Center for Conservative Governance, it launched a series of satellite conferences to develop conservative leadership at the grassroots level, training 1066 individuals in its first-round efforts.

The Free Congress Foundation board of directors include director Paul Weyrich, an ardent supporter of the Society for the Protection of  Tradition, Family and Property 36  and Charles Moser, an editorial adviser to a publication that praises the Nazi Waffen SS. Weyrich, who for years has represented the political interests of the Coors family in Washington, DC, sponsors the work of a convicted Nazi collaborator, Laszlo Pasztor, a Hungarian-American who is employed at FCF. The Coors-funded Heritage Foundation co-sponsored a 1989 forum with a pro-Nazi group, the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. SEE: Dr. David Balsiger

In 1977, The Heritage Foundation employed Roger Pearson on the editorial board of Policy Review, the monthly Heritage publication. Pearson is a British race scientist who organized the Northern League of Europe and became head of of the WACL, the multinational network of Nazi war criminals, Latin American death squad leaders and North American neo-fascists. In 1975, Pearson organized an American branch of WACL called the Council on American Affairs. Roger Pearson's research was financed by the Pioneer Fund of CNP's Thomas F. Ellis . It is about racism, eugenics and 'master race' swill. 

Weyrich works with Plinio de Correa de Olivier's Tradition, Family & Property 37 and endorsed Olivier's book, Nobility & Analagous Traditional Elites, on the necessity of restoring traditional Nobility & Elites to rule the world. "Sadly, most American elites are now devoted to self-interest, not to service, which is one reason why affairs here go so badly. Your book may help reawaken people to the realization that we need and can have an elite devoted to service." The Secret Story of a Cult Apologist 38 website provides a picture of Weyrich & CNP leader Morton Blackwell with the American head of TFP, which defends cults such as Scientology.

Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation provided office space for Laszlo Pasztor, an ex-Bush campaigner, and a convicted Austrian pro-Nazi collaborator. Viewed as Weyrich's right hand man, Pasztor's Coalitions of the Americas is a subsidiary in Free Congress Foundation, the political arm of Heritage Foundation. 39  In 1997 the Scaife Foundations 40 gave Free Congress Foundation $1,670,000; by 1988 Scaife was the top lifetime donor to FCF, with a total of $7,014,000." Scaife split the FCF funding between two of their publicized foundations: Sarah Scaife Foundation and the Carthage Foundation. Scaife is aboard member.

John Coleman wrote, "HERITAGE FOUNDATION Founded by brewery magnate  Joseph Coors to act as a conservative think tank, Heritage was soon taken over by Fabianists Sir Peter Vickers Hall, Stuart Butler, Steven Ayzlei, Robert Moss and Frederich Von Hayek under the direction of the Club of Rome. This institute played a major role in carrying out British Labour leader Anthony Wedgewood Benn's order to "Thatcherize Reagan." Heritage is certainly not a conservative operation although at times it may look and sound like one. " 41 

For Fabian Society See: The Clapham Sect & The Socialists ; The Cecil Rhodes Connection; The Clapham Sect, The Ghost Society & The Word of God; World Vision: Institute for Global Engagement & Eastern College

"The Committee of 300 through its many affiliated organizations was able to nullify the Reagan presidency. Here is what Stuart Butler of the Heritage Foundation had to say on the subject "The right thought it had won in 1980 but in fact it may have lost." What Butler was referring to was the situation in which the Right found itself when it realized that every single position of importance in the Reagan administration was filled by Fabianist appointees recommended by the Heritage Foundation. Butler went on to say that Heritage would use rightwing ideas to impose leftwing radical principles upon the United States, the same radical ideas which Sir Peter Vickers Hall, top Fabianist in the U.S. and the number one man at Heritage, had been openly discussing during the election year."

"Sir Peter Vickers Hall remained an active Fabianist even though he was running a conservative "think tank." As a member of the British oligarchical Vickers armament manufacturing family, he had position and power. The Vickers family supplied both sides in the First World War and again during Hitler's rise to power. Vickers' official cover was the University of California's Urban and Regional Development Institute. He was a longtime confidant of British Labour leader and Committee of 300 member Anthony Wedgewood Benn."

"Both Vickers and Benn are integrated with the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations, the premiere brainwashing institution in the world. Vickers uses his Tavistock training to very good effect when speech-making." 42 

In the early 1980s Heritage received $2.2 million covertly from the Korean CIA, according to the November 1988 testimony of former South Korean intelligence director Chang S. Tong. And the same year a staff report from the House Committee on Foreign Affairs stated that Oliver North used Heritage as a cutout for some of his contra fundraising.  43       

Heritage Foundation public-relations director Cheryl Rubin confirmed that Heritage Foundation received a total of $1 million via the Korea Foundation 44 from 1993 through 1995. She said that Heritage stopped receiving funds from the Korea Foundation in 1996. The Wall Street Journal (8/10/95) reported that the Korea Foundation "is funded by South Korea's Foreign Ministry" and "is an affiliate of the South Korean government, according to Yoo Lee, a spokesman for South Korea's embassy" in Washington.  45  Footnotes 29-45

Plymouth Rock Foundation 51, "'Charles Hull Wolfe'..., in 1969, when John G.

By contrast, some of the minority, (chiefly myself and John Talcott), knew that America had deeply Biblical roots, and believed the Pilgrim anniversary should make that plain. We were impressed with the scholarly work of Verna M. Hall, author of "The Christian History of the Constitution," & the indispensable role of the Pilgrims in that history..." Plymouth Rock's executive director, Rus Walton, is a member of the Coalition on Revival steering committee.

"Rus Walton, head of the Plymouth Rock Foundation" and one of the leaders of Bill Bright's 1970's "Third Century" organization, circulated a memo opposing working with the Moonies in CNP member loaded American Freedom Coalition. Walton eventually backed down under pressure from CNP and Christian Voice head Robert Grant, who was also a leader and joined with the Moonie venture. 52

Founder/President of the Rutherford Institute... has shifted to the left, according to a recent report in Christianity Today (12/7/98). The founder, John Whitehead, is making a conscious effort to make the Rutherford Institute known more as a civil-rights organization. For example, he has begun defending the civil rights of homosexuals, and he has publicly called on conservative Christians to stop using antihomosexual rhetoric. Alexis Crow, chief counsel for the Rutherford Institute (and former aide to Henry Kissinger), explained the evolution in Whitehead's thought. 'He has always worked for the underdog. And today homosexuals are an underdog.' ... Whitehead also stirred controversy over his decision to take the Paula Jones case. He says he took the case because he believed her and because he wanted to increase the profile of the Institute. The case, however, has cost his organization hundreds of thousands in legal expenses and lost donations. Whitehead says he likes President Clinton, and if it weren't for the president's position on abortion, would vote for him. Rutherford Institute is also recommended to Scientologists in need of legal defense.

""The Rutherford Institute is an organization that defends the rights of ALL religious persons," according to Crow, "regardless of denomination or creed and, as such, has defended, among others, Christians, Jews, atheists, Santerians, Native Americans, and Hare Krishna." 53  

"...Fred Clarkson has provided detailed coverage of Whitehead and his ties to dominionism, and on the overlap between conspiracism and dominionism, in his book Eternal Hostility: The Struggle Between Theocracy and Democracy.  54 

According to Clarkson:

"Many other Christian Right thinkers and activists have also been significantly influenced by Reconstructionism: the late Francis Schaeffer, whose book A Christian Manifesto was an influential call to evangelical political action that sold two millions copies; John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, a Christian Right legal group, and Michael Farris, 1993 GOP candidate for Lt. Governor of Virginia, among others.

"John Whitehead was a student and protégé of both Schaeffer and Rushdoony and credits them as the major influences on this thought... The Rutherford Institute, named for 17th century Scottish minister Samuel Rutherford, is an influential Christian Right legal group with chapters throughout the US, and offices in a number of countries. Rutherford, whose book Lex Rex is de rigueur in theocratic circles, defied the King of England by proclaiming that god's laws were higher than those of the King and were to be followed if they conflicted with the king's laws. As he has grown in prominence, Whitehead has sought to disassociate himself from Reconstructionism. However, perhaps he doth protest too much. Whitehead's roots are certainly in Reconstructionism, even if his present beliefs are not. Rushdoony, who wrote the outline for Whitehead's first book (which Whitehead researched in Rushdoony's library)...introduced Whitehead at a May 1983 conference, calling him a man 'chosen by God,' and that consequently, 'there is something very important in the ministry of John Whitehead.' Rushdoony then spoke of 'our plans, through Rutherford,' which was founded the year before, in 1982, 'to fight the battle against statism and the freedom of Christ's Kingdom.'... Rushdoony and fellow Chalcedon director and funder Howard Ahmanson were among the seven founding directors of the Rutherford Institute...

"Prior to the founding of Rutherford, Rushdoony steered cases to Whitehead--including the 1979 case of Rev. Charles McIlhenny who was sued for firing his church organist because the organist was gay. McIlhenny reports not only that 'our theological compatibility made for a good working relations,' but that Whitehead's courtroom victory 'helped to nudge him closer to founding the Rutherford Institute.'...

"Whitehead also has a long train of dominion-oriented political statements. He says, 'The challenge of the Christian to be a vocal, dynamic spokesman for the true legal profession--the one with Christ at its center--and to stop at nothing less than reclaiming the whole system.' He also said that the public education system, including universities, 'must be reinstilled with Christian theism.' If there is no hope of such reforms, he said, 'then Christians must remove their financial support from the system... Whitehead also wrote a long favorable forward to Gary DeMar's 1987 book Ruler of the Nations (published as part of the Gary North's Biblical Blueprints Series), in which Whitehead endorses the Reconstructionist view of 'three types of government established by God--the family, the church, and civil government...under the ultimate authority of God.'...

"Nevertheless, Rutherford attorney Alexis I. Crow insisted to Skipp Porteous of the Institute for First Amendment Studies that 'John Whitehead is not a Reconstructionist and he never has been.'....In the acknowledgments to The Stealing of America, Whitehead explains that "Francis A. Schaeffer's advice and teachings on the essential priorities are reflected in the following pages. Dr. Schaeffer stands as one of the great philosophers of our times." Francis Schaeffer is considered to have provided the intellectual groundwork for dominion theology..." 55 

Francis Schaeffer was "an earlier source of dominion theology...who died of cancer in 1984. Schaeffer's 1981 book A Christian Manifesto sold 290,00 copies in its first year, and remained one of the Christian Right's most important texts into the 1990's...Schaeffer advocated the use by Christians of civil disobedience to restore Biblical morality...several of the young men he influenced joined the Coalition on Revival (COR)..." 56 

Dennis Peacocke's Coalition on Revival (COR) was co-founded and headed by Jay Grimstead. Jay Grimstead's COR Manifesto is the document which outlines COR's goals and objectives. The 135 Christian activists who signed the document in 1986 committed themselves to working for the realization of COR's goals "until the day we die." Those on the COR steering committee include other CNP members as well as recognized shepherding movement leaders such as Bob Mumford and Ern Baxter, as well as Jack Van Impe.  Footnotes 47-56

Faith Ryan Whittlesey- CNP 1988, 1996, 1998; former U.S Ambassador to Switzerland, (1981-1983, 1985-1988); President, American Swiss Foundation; White House public liaison director, the most senior woman on Ronald Reagan's staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator; 

"As early as 1983, Reagan's assistant Faith Ryan Whittlesey convened an Outreach Working Group on Central America, through which White House personnel coordinated private organizations on media, direct mail, and legislative lobbying activities...More than fifty groups attended White House briefings on Central America. These included Christian Right organizations such as Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority, Pat Robertson's Freedom Council, and [Weiner's] Maranatha Campus Ministries; the neo-conservative Institute of Religion and Democracy, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, and the semi-governmental American Institute for Free Labor Development (AIFLD) [long-standing ties to the CIA, was chaired by CNP's J. Peter Grace; 57 ]; plus the New Rights outfits Accuracy in Media, the Eagle Forum, the Heritage Foundation, the Conservative Caucus, Young Americans for Freedom and the Richard Viguerie Company....Whittlesey's office then circulated summary reports listing precise dates on which each organization hosted speakers, appeared on television and radio, mailed fundraising appeals...The agenda sheet of a May 18, 1983 White House meeting included a line asking participants, "How else can the administration be helpful?" Attached was a list of administration officials involved...These included Roger Fontaine and Walt Raymond of the National Security Council, Constantine Menges of the Central Intelligence Agency, Otto Reich of the Agency for International Development, Fred Ikle and Nestor Sanchez of the Defense Department....In addition to the media and lobbying work coordinated through Faith Ryan Whittlesey's office, member organizations...conducted direct fundraising and logistical tasks for the Nicaraguan Contras. At the center of the "private" aid network was the World Anti-Communist League (WACL)..." 58  

"In no area of U.S. foreign and military policy did the Christian Right play a greater role than...Central America...lobbying and aid for the dictatorship of Guatemalan General Efrain Rios Montt, who assumed the presidency in a March 1982 coup d'etat. Rios Montt had been converted to Protestant pentecostalism after a group of ...California "Jesus Freaks" brought their Gospel Outreach church to...Guatemala in 1976. Immediately following the 1982 coup, Pat Robertson interviewed Rios Montt...and promised to send Rios Montt aid and missionaries. Weeks after the coup, a Gospel Outreach pastor came to the United States for a meeting between Reagan administration officials and Christian Right January 1983, 350 U.S. evangelicals set sail in a boat carrying one million dollars' worth of [supplies]...By then, thousands of Guatemalans had been massacred and made homeless in one of the bloodiest counterinsurgency campaigns in Central America's history. The target was Guatemala's civilian, mostly indigenous population, seen as the base of support for the Guatemalan guerrilla movement. Some Gospel Outreach members reportedly took part in the regime's espionage and torture-interrogation operations. Entire villages were annihilated, while Rios Montt's U.S. backers justified the "scorched earth" campaign in religious terms. In one interview, a Gospel Outreach pastor defended the killings: "The Army doesn't massacre the Indians. It massacres demons, and the Indians are demon possessed; they are communists. We hold Brother Efrain Rios Montt like King David of the Old Testament. He is the king of the New Testament."  By the time Rios Montt was himself deposed in August 1983 by another military coup, his North American Christian Right backers had joined the White House Working Group on Central America...through which the Reagan administration coordinated the media, lobbying, and "freedom fighter" supply operations of private groups." 59 

"The Outreach Group was a vehicle for packaging PR themes, networking... "White House officials scoffed when a reporter asked whether they might be running a ministry of propaganda."...May 20, 1983, NSC official Walter Raymond Jr., a propaganda expert and former CIA officer informed...that the "Faith Whittlesey effort" was " off to a good start" and discussed the establishment of a "Coalition for a Democratic Central America". In a section headed "Private Funding Effort," Raymond wrote. "...The group made their first commitment of $400,000 which includes support to Freedom House, a pro-INF [Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces] group in Holland, Accuracy in Media, and a European based labor program. These are useful steps....Raymond and [Roy] Godson 'recommended funding via Freedom House or some other structure...Roy Godson, A Georgetown University professor, was a member of the 1980 CIA transition team and has been a paid consultant to the USIA, the NSC and the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. He is Washington director of the National Strategy Information Center, which provided funding to Aruno Cruz. Godson has also been a paid advisor to the CIA-connected U.S. Youth Council, the parent of the International Youth Year Commission, which is assumed to be the "Intl. Youth Comm." named on the flow chart of North-supervised contra support entities...Godson solicited donations for North and the Nicaragua operation, at least once using the Heritage Foundation as a conduit. Whittlesey returned to Switzerland as ambassador in May 1985...and turned the embassy into a contra propaganda outpost. Journalist Diana Johnstone described the Whittlesey embassy as "a de facto branch office of the World Anti-Communist League and its protégés the contras." 60 

"Amy O'Neill, 32, of Delray Beach, is the daughter of Faith Ryan Whittlesey, who was ambassador to Switzerland, White House public liaison director, the most senior woman on Ronald Reagan's staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator and the Sunbeam Corp. board member who seconded the motion to fire "Chainsaw Al" Dunlap as president. 

"George O'Neill, 49, of Lake Wales, is the oldest of the "fifth generation" of the Rockefeller family, son of socialite Abby "Mitzi" Milton O'Neill -- eldest of "The Cousins" generation and director of the family empire headquarters -- a great-great-grandson of John D. Rockefeller and a devotee of far-right icons Pat Buchanan, Phyllis Schlafly and Florida's own U.S. Rep. Charles Canady. Their divorce is into its third year, fourth judge, 12th volume of court files and thousands of pages of documents in Orange County Circuit Court at Orlando. Trial is set to start March 6 and last three weeks. At issue: The future of five children, ages 1 to 8, and the secrecy of the legendary Rockefeller family trusts, believed to be worth billions. Amy O'Neill's lawyers have accomplished what few thought possible: getting a New York court to order release of copies of the 1934 trust established by John D. Rockefeller Jr. and other trusts created within the family."

"George O'Neill has maintained throughout the divorce proceedings that he has only small and sporadic income from the trusts, though he did admit receiving $795,000 in allowance from his parents in 1997. He claimed he had no marital assets to divide with his wife, and that he and his five siblings have only an "expectancy" of money from the trusts."

"Faith Whittlesey, now a lawyer in Cambridge, Mass., would say only: "It's an inexpressible tragedy for the children and for the families, and it's a mystery for me how the Rockefeller and O'Neill family can allow this to continue."61   Footnotes 57-61
